About the eLearning Hub

Welcome to the eLearning Hub

A very warm welcome to the eLearning Hub! CPD eLearning and Trainees Online (TrOn) are bespoke resources from RCPsych, specifically designed to meet the educational needs of practising psychiatrists. As these are produced by the RCPsych, you can be confident in their quality and relevance.

Our digestible modules and podcasts are created by experts in their fields, predominantly clinical and academic psychiatrists, who know what you need to know. They’ve done the hard work for you, by sifting through the literature to produce cutting-edge updates across a whole range of topics. Everything can be straightforwardly accessed from your desktop or mobile, so you can easily fit your learning around other commitments.

CPD eLearning is designed for consultant and career grade doctors working in mental health services. Currently we have over 200 modules and 160+ podcasts to choose from and these numbers are always growing, while content is kept up to date through our module updates programme. Certificates are generated automatically after satisfactorily completing each learning event, making it simple to evidence your credits towards annual CPD requirements. At present you can obtain up to 50 credits from eLearning. You can subscribe as an individual or institution and we welcome all mental health professionals, including from outside the UK. If you want to find out more, please do get in touch.

For core trainees in psychiatry and others who wish to sit the MRCPsych examinations we offer TrOn to help you prepare for Paper A. The modules have been written by authors with recent experience of sitting the examinations themselves. All modules are also rigorously reviewed by experts in the field and the Examinations Panel, to ensure they are relevant and high quality. TrOn is currently available free of charge to anyone registered with the College as a Trainee, Member, Affiliate, Student Associate or Foundation Doctor Associate – just log in with your College details (not OpenAthens) to access the modules. It is also available to access on annual subscription.

We are particularly grateful if users leave feedback on any aspect of both products and, if you would like to get further involved, just drop us a line for details of opportunities.

You may have noticed that the eLearning Hub is now also home to the Congress Webinar Library, Webinar Library and some new Advanced Learning courses. These expand the College’s range of learning resources, complementing CPD eLearning and TrOn, and are all available on the one platform.

We hope you enjoy using CPD eLearning, TrOn and any other resources on the eLearning Hub and, if you have benefitted, please do tell your colleagues!
